Filed under: 1940 Census
The images of the 1940 Census became available this morning. For me it has been a day of patiently waiting as the people I want to find are not in the cities therefore they do not have addresses. I was not successful at being able to find the pages, so I will just be patient as Kansas is one of the first to be available for indexing.
Having worked with computers, a project of this magnitude will probably have some glitches. Also many people were wanting to see them and the numbers are amazing. I anticipate it will be a week or more before Kansas is completely indexed and arbitrated so I can find my father, mother, brother and sister. My Aunt may be living with them at the time, just have to wait and see. I will be anxious for the Montana, and Arkansas pages to be completed.
Through out the day I had been checking Family Search to start indexing. To help time pass, I did several indexing projects. About 7 pm there is was 1940 Census ready to index. I down loaded, and indexed 4 pages for Allen County Kansas and one for Atchinson County Kansas.
Tomorrow morning, I will be doing some volunteer work with photos for the Santa Fe Trail Center. They have been scanned I just need to be able to make adjusts and hopefully some information about the photo to be uploaded to the Santa Fe Trail Center website. I am just learning the program, which has not been user friendly. Hope to have some success tomorrow. In the afternoon I will continue to do some indexing.
The next several months will be quite exciting as the volunteers work on the indexing and getting the information out for another generation.
